Glasses are a huge part of my identity. I've been wearing them since I was 5 years old, and I honestly can't imagine ever going without them now. I love wearing glasses - I love how they look on my face, I love the character they add, I love that they help me see this big beautiful world much better (I'm v blind), and I love that now the glasses you choose are really a fashion statement. They say something about the wearer - whether they're modern, edgy, classic, or if you're like me...a little bit of everything depending on which frames you pick that day. Which is a freedom I now have thanks to discovering Coastal, this eye-wear retailer has so much variety at actually affordable prices that finally makes it possible for life-long glasses wearers like me to switch out their frames to match their outfit, activities, and mood! Going to pick out my glasses as a kid was a big deal, because they were expensive and that was they pair I was stuck with for a year until my next eye exam. My parent's and I would have to go order them at a physical store and wait over a week for them to come. It's literally so exciting that now I can easily order frames with Coastal despite my semi- complicated prescription (for real, I'm v blind), have way more options than going to a brick-and-mortar, AND can afford 2-3 pairs at a time. A big part of Coastal's mission is providing people all over the world with what they need to see. Read more about their buy one, give one initiative here.
My first couple of years blogging - I would 100% shoot in sunglasses. I'm honestly not used to my face without any glasses, but didn't think wearing them (when you actually need them) looked cool and stylish. I look back now, and can't believe I was so shy to take photos in my glasses. Glasses are literally the epitome of cool and chic. Especially my new Kam Dhillon frames. Everyone who has seen them LOVES them. I really love them too. They're a little different for me, but I wanted something different for this year. I'm also deeply digging that they're metal frames and rose gold - it's so vintage-inspired, I'm eating it up!
